We are glad to invite you to a seminar by Prof. Dmitry Gorin, titled “In vitro and in vivo imaging of remote controlled theranostic carriers”
In his talk Prof. Dmitry Gorin will introduce a new type of multifunctional carriers that will combine the functions of in vivo navigation and visualization, the ability to deploy drug in controllable manner, including physical triggering and sensing of important biological markers. Physical targeting of carriers will be realized by the gradient of magnetic field, optical tweezers approach. The carrier sensitivity to external influences as laser irradiation, ultrasound treatment can be changed by variation of volume fraction and chemical composition of inorganic nanoparticles in the nanocomposite carrier shells. The same approach is applied for drug delivery carriers and biosensors imaging by MRI, OCT and photoacoustics using magnetite and gold nanoparticles as contrast agents, respectively. The obtained multifunctional carriers can be used as drug delivery systems including drug depot, combining such functionalities as navigation and visualization, remote activated release of bioactive substances.
Dmitry Gorin is the Professor at the Department of Nano- and Biomedical Technologies, the Deputy Director of the Institute of Nanostructures and Biosystems at Saratov State University. He commenced his MS degree in Physics-Engineering from the Physical Department at Saratov State University in 1997, and the PhD degree (Candidate of Science) in Physical Chemistry from Saratov State University, in 2001. He has completed and successfully defended habilitation work (Doctor of Science in Physical Chemistry) at Saratov State University, in 2011. In 2013 Dmitry Gorin obtained the Diploma of Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO “New Leader of High Education – 2012”. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Queen Mary University of London. Dmitry Gorin is the author and co-author of 105 scientific publications including 65 articles in peer-reviewed journals (Q1, WOS), 1 book and 1 book chapter, 7 tutorials for students and PhD students, the co-inventor of 11 patents. Dmitry Gorin has sucessfully supervised 10 defended PhD theses (Candidate of Science, 7 Biophysics, 3 Material Science). He is the promoter of 2 Habilitation works (Maria Antipina (2016 in Biophysics) and Alexey Yashchenok (2017 in Biophysics). His current research interest focuses on Biophysics, Biophotonics, Theranostics, Physics and Chemistry of Colloids and Interfaces, Smart materials.
